Recycled Wine Cork Christmas Mouse Decoration

We love to recycle and last year I asked my friends to collect wine corks, bottle tops and other bits and pieces for me. We ended up with a whole heaps of useful items to recycle and use in our craft projects and that is always great for the environment and for the budget. Today we have a fun and easy to make Wine Cork Mouse Decoration. This was created by a guest crafter and we are sharing it here on The Inspiration Edit.
